I'm not sure about shuttle services as we rented a car. But it's close to many sites and restaurants. I recommend hiring a vehicle giving you much more flexibility In All you do. Have a great time!!!

I've stayed several times. The only difference is location of the rooms. Everything else is the same. We always book standard, we are placed in the rooms past the pool or in the garden area.
